Join Us For A Winter Solstice Hike & Bonfire

10 am to 12 pm, Dec. 21
Pachaug State Forest, Rt 49, Voluntown, CT

Celebrate the winter solstice with TLGV and the Friends of Pachaug Forest. We’ll start at the CCC Camp area with a 2.4 mile loop hike through the beautiful cedar swamp, into a varied landscape with large hardwood trees and white pines and then over to Edmonds Pond marsh where we have the chance to spot a bald eagle. We’ll end up back at the CCC Camp area where we’ll relax with a bonfire and hot cocoa. Participants are welcome to share their thoughts on the winter solstice, including poetry or prose. The hike is mostly level and on dirt roads. Bring a chair for around the campfire. For more information, please contact Chief Ranger Bill Reid at or 860-774-3300.
